Inge H. Borg

Biography

Inge H. Borg was born and raised in Austria. Her early love of reading made her dream of far-away places. Encouraged by her parents, she left home at eighteen to study languages in London, Paris and Moscow. A job transfer from Vienna to Chicago led to becoming a US citizen.

After working on both coasts, Borg now lives in Arkansas where she devotes most of her time to writing.
In her five-volume "Legends of the Winged Scarab" series, she deftly switches from historical fiction in 3080 BC Ancient Egypt to its modern thriller/adventure sequels from the Arab Spring 2012 to a dystopian 2016 AD. While each volume can stand alone for its action/adventure story, some background information will necessarily be lost until the books are read in sequence.

While Books 1 (Khamsin, The Devil Wind of The Nile) is available for purchase now, the full 5-book series will be offered at Smashwords and its distribution channels by the end of May 2016.

Among several shorter books, she also wrote a non-fiction account of her volunteer time at a small animal shelter. All of Borgs books are available in print through Amazon.

Borg is a staunch supporter of her Indie-writer colleagues and often highlights the best on her two blogs:

Smashwords Interview

You have quite a few books to your credit – historical fiction, thrillers, intrigue, poetry, humor, and even a book about a cat.
Probably like most of us, I started out being ‘earnest’ with my outpourings, mainly my poems.
Then, I discovered there was this mischievous splint in my soul and I dared to mix some lighter stuff into my writing (and if anyone asks, I will steadfastly deny that any of that stemmed from my own experiences. I will also deny that I sometimes tell a fib).
Many of your books include exotic locations and, in your historical fiction novel, faraway times. Obviously, you are a sophisticated lady who has traveled a lot and experienced much hinting of some dashes of intrigue.
Thank you for your kind words. Now that my head is bigger, i.e. swelled, I am only too happy to answer your questions.

When the flaming-orange tom was brought to the local animal shelter, he was messy. And he stank. That darn cat never took his eyes off me. They were not quite green and not quite yellow; they were round, and alert, and reflected light like precious stones set in orange gold. ‘Don’t even think about it,’ I told him. I already had two cats.
